Severe problem with uninstalling AV v.3
The other day, I accepted and installed the new version (release 3, I think) of AV. I did this to see how the install went because I knew I'd be trashing the OS very soon for unrelated reasons. The install went fine.
I have installed and uninstalled AV more than a few times so I know how long everything takes. However, when I uninstalled this new version, the process took much, much longer than it did before. Up until the part where it said "click here to finish the uninstall" everything was as it was before, but after that everything took 10-20 times as long. Eventually it finished and I must admit I almost pressed the power switch.
But then I tried to shut the PC down. Shutdown, restart, and cntl-alt-delete had no effect at all. I had to press the power switch to shut it down.
I then removed the disk from that PC and mounted it as an external drive on another PC to reformat it. As soon as Windows (7 64-bit in both cases) recognized it, I was warned that the disk was corrupted; a chkdsk was recommended.
I do not require any assistance, as the disk has already been reformatted, but F-Secure needs to know that the uninstall for AV v.3 has some problems.
P.S. Unlike my other W-7 systems, the problem-PC had not yet been upgraded to use IE 10, so that was not an issue.
